Linux Mint 13 and sunoracle java

Although I’m on the way to move away from Linux Mint (epic shortage of functionality – it is a modern OS but you CAN’t dist-upgrade, in the same time – all other OS’es CAN do it) it still run’s on few of my boxes and it (MATE version) runs nicely on older hardware. So.. there is not anymore sun’s jdk and oracle’s jdk not available in (default) package management. Yeah, there is few alternatives, but they are not… wokring well. For example this won’t play with no other jdk but sunoracle’s.

Here’s three commands to fix it:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer
